The last picture is the from Madison Square Garden 1980. It is said that is this song is about Bob's former manager Don Taylor who during many years stole money from the band. "The term card or bad card in this case serves as a metaphor quite popularly used in Jamaican music and street talk referring to some deceitful action or slyness on the part of an individual or group of individuals. In this case the song speaks of one associate of Marley's that was founding to be cheating the group, Bob Marley and the Wailers, while on tour in Africa of profits made." You a go tired to see my face Can't get me out of the race .... Propaganda spreading over my name Say you wanna bring another life to shame Oh man you're just playing a game And then you draw bad card
